can use the debt ceiling, which you can, in the end, pull the trigger on -- which you cannot, in the end, fully drawn. it would be catastrophic. it means to have to cut spending by 40% overnight, which you cannot do. unless you can execute the glove, don't good because obama will call it as he called it on generate first of this year, has he would with the debt ceiling. don't execute if you cannot carry out the block. i hope you weren't applauding carry out the blood appeared in which case, my entire argument is undermined and has gone nowhere. >> i think there is a small contingent. >> and they are on suicide watch. i hope their shoelaces have been removed.
